We have a very friendly and welcoming office for both children and adults. Our professional and talented staff love what they do and enjoy working with patients of all ages. It is our goal to provide excellent orthodontic care in a professional, caring and friendly environment. To schedule an appointment, request a time online or call our office.

“I am very happily married to my best friend Laura, who also grew up in Greensboro. We really enjoyed our time in Seattle during my residency but are glad we returned home to start my practice and our family. We have a son, Christopher, and a daughter, Allyson, and are so very proud of both of them! Our Boxer, Rhone, is also very much a part of our family.
I like gardening and playing a round of golf when I get the chance. Laura and I also enjoy traveling and spending time with family and friends. Cooking is a favorite pastime of mine, and I love to select the perfect bottle of wine to match with the meal. Once a year I enjoy a sailing adventure with a group of good buddies, and as you might guess, I am the chef!” – Dr. Alan Irvin
